Broke down and paid for an app today.

Pocket Guy for the IPhone is a simple app. You really don't do much in this app its more like a screen saver. With a few updates Pocket guy now has a dog and a neighbour named Arnold they share a connecting roof. Arnold has not stopped buy yet I'm still waiting. The web site claims a female named Karen is coming soon as well. You can drag Pocket Guy around his house allowing him to interact with the elements around him. Other wise leave him be. He walk around the house himself and go about his day. Their is no objective just the idea of having a Friend trapped in your phone.

With that said their really is no need for a pocket friend other then to kill time and make your friends laugh at the craziness trapped in my phone. I'm sure my wife will be asking why. This is a 99 cent app and at that price its really up to the buyer. I have spent a buck on worse things.

The sound for the game is done well. From brushing teeth to drinking a can of soda even the the TV sounds good. The …

Flashback Weekend Update.

Image
GINGER SNAPS REUNION Yay! Now I'm looking forward to Flashback weekend. Love Ginger Snaps it was one of those movie's we would sell allot of at Suncoast. The movie has a big cult following. The goth kids would come in and this is what we would sell them. But better yet KATHARINE ISABELLE
(above) was great in Freddy vs Jason. Here is her bio.
Born in Vancouver, BC, Canada Katharine was probably used to the television and film production lifestyle as her father, Graeme Murray has been responsible for special effects on shows such as The X-files.

Like so many others, Katharine broke into acting at an early age winning parts on films such as Cousins, Cold Front and shows like MacGuyver. As time went on Katharine won bigger roles which would eventually build up to a lead role in Ginger Snaps.

Whilst living in Vancouver, Katharine has built an ever-growing resume, not only on Canadian film and television but also with some of Hollywood's big names. In 2002, Katharine appeared i…

You Scream I Scream we all Scream 4....

Well, not Ice scream but reports are flying the Scream 4 has an outline. Writer Kevin Williamson (Dawson's Creek and the Scream Trilogy) has been working on more films that will bring back many of the characters from the original movies. It is expected to start production this fall. Also, it sounds like they are in talks with a few of the stars from the series to make "Cameo's". Williamson has approached Courteney Cox Arquette and David Arquette to return. No word on whether Neve Campbell's character, among others, will make the cut. "We are going to be doing 'Scream 4,',hopefully," Arquette said. "Kevin Williamson is writing the script at this mom hopefully,Wes Craven is going to direct." Courteney has also signed on. Arquette hopes Craven and Neve Campbell follow, but that's still all up in the air. And naturally, no plot details are being revealed as to where Williamson is taking the story next. I have heard allot of rumbling a…

Cheesy covered groovy fun

Nothing is better than opening the mail box to have 3 trades show up at your door. Its like Christmas or your birthday it so much fun. If you are not trading on line by now what is wrong with you. We have been doing it for over 2 years now. But today was one of the odd mixes to show up. First "My Name Is Bruce" people must really hate this movie. By the time, I could add it my wish list their where 12 in front of me. That was 3 months ago! I love this movie but not enough to pay more than 10 bucks for it so when I added it I felt I would find it for 10 dollars long before I would score it for a DVD I did not like. Here is the story...
Cult film and TV star Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice) lampoons his own B-movie legacy with My Name is Bruce, an agreeably goofy horror-comedy which pits him--well, a version of him, anyway--against a malevolent Asian spirit in order to save a die-hard fan. Campbell also directed Bruce, and brings a loose, kitchen-sink vibe to the proceedings, whi…

The Bird's

(The following story is based on true events that took place on a quiet street)

It happened one quiet Summer afternoon. The sun was about to peek on this warm Sunday, as we all sat in the house dancing around and waiting for Grandma to come home from church, so dad could cut the grass. As grandma pulled up the kids were full of life and ready to go visit for awhile. I packed them up and was ready to head out. Little did we know this quiet little street was about to be full of loud nerve-shattering noise.
We all stepped out onto the porch and I was shutting the door when Ella was walking past our little tree and jumped and let out small startled yelp. As a small bird, just as scared as she was, went zooming out the tree and passed her. Well, that did not seem to sit well with a few mommy and daddy birds nearby. As I stepped down myself, to tell Ella it was OK, down swooped the upset birds yelling right at us. At first, I did not think much of this and started walking to the house acro…

More Breaking DVD News

Sorry don't know how I missed this. But on the same day as Hardbodies will also be "Spring Break"! It will be a Happy Birthday in this house. Here is the scoop. Stu & O.T. are two studs from the big city who arrive in Fort Lauderdale for spring break. They discover that the room they had reserved in an over-crowded motel is already being occupied by Nelson & Adam, a pair of college-nerds. With no other accommodations available, Nelson & Adam reluctantly agree to share the room with Stu & O.T., who promise to show them a good time. The wet-T-shirt contests and beer-guzzling-fun are threatened when Nelson's controlling step-dad shows up, along with a building inspector who wants to shut down the motel.Starring David Knell, Perry Lang, Paul Land, Steve Bassett and Jessica James. Can wait for this its been a long time, I was even going to look for this on VHS just to watch it again. I'm sure I have not seen this since 1984.

Breaking DVD News!!

Hardbodies Collection YES!! Finally one of the great movies from my youth is hitting DVD. "Three middle-aged daddies visit California to have a marvelous time at the beach. When they learn that a nice apartment and an expensive cabriolet isn't enough for them to score with the chicks, they employ a student to help them. At first he's as disgusted of them and his job as his girlfriend, but soon they find out how to use the situation to everyone's benefit." This is also one of Kane Hoder's first movies (Mr. Jason Voorhee's himself). I could never understand why this has not made it sooner, but hey its coming that leaves 3 must own DVDs not on DVD. Those would be "Spring Break (1983)" "American Anthem (1986)" and "Electric Dreams (1984)". So here are the specs Title: THE HARDBODIES COLLECTION Release Date: 08/18/2009 Label/Distributor: ANCHOR BAY Rating: R/R Prebook DVD: 07/16/2009 Retail Price: DVD $14.98 Genre: Comedy Cast: Grant Cr…

Trust...

OK so one of the biggest things I have had trouble getting over is being over protective of Ella. I feel that I have to stand by her all day to make sure she is fine, and I hate that. Its so hard to trust somebody that's not with her all the time. But I'm working on it. Letting her stay with my parents house, letting her run around out side with out me worrying about her. Then this weekend I let her go with Heather all day. She took Ella after we went to the Home Depot. They headed to Burger King to eat and run around and then to play and I felt OK with that, this is a big step. Mind you I trust Heather she is around kids all day and I know she would since something wrong with Ella and call me right away. But hey I did it I let her walk away, man whats going to happen when she brings home that first date!

This was an action packed weekend. Fireworks on Friday in Peru on Saturday in Spring Valley and Utica (picture) on Sunday. That means bed at 11:00 every night! Lainey did not …

Do Not Go Down That Hole, Are You Nuts?

The Doom Stone By Paul Zindel Synopsis
A killer beast—half-man, half-apelike—terrorizes the English plain on which Stonehenge lies. Fifteen-year-old Jackson Cauley, with the help of his anthropologist aunt and a local girl, has tracked down the predator’s lair. But the source of the beast’s power lies in the ancient Doom Stone of Stonehenge, and unless its secret is unlocked, the deadly slaughter will continue. This book wastes no time at all with its first kill with in the first 3 pages. Join Jackson on a twist and turn filled hold your breath tale of creatures under ground. I Love Zindel's work "My durling my Hamberger" and "Pardon Me, Your Stepping on My Eye Ball" and this book was a 180 degree turn from everything I have read. While reading this book I did find myself holding my breath. This book is written for tweens so no real blood. Do not let that throw you off its a good summer time read and will not take more then a day or two. I was lucky to find this b…

Diabetes Update

Here is some shocking news "Kids with Type 1 diabetes are more likely to be overweight than those without the disease, increasing their risk of serious health and complications, researchers say. "

As Ella would say "Ya Think" food is what she needs to survive. She eats more with her med's then I eat in a day. This has been the biggest concern of Erinn and I for a few months now. She eats healthy and you would think that would help but it does not. We stay active it's not like she sits around and watches TV. This is so frustrating! And right now we trying to get her levels back in order after a growth spurt, I make me want to bang my head off the wall! Our goal is 80 - 180 and we can hardly get her to 200. For those who have asked she is not on Lantus. I would probably be in the nut house if she was. So as we go into a big food all around holiday wish us luck!


Happy 4th of July!
